Steel Scalemail Snake - Pose 1
I decided to make yet another snek, this time it is armor grade though.
I used stainless scale and steel split rings, aside from the trimming of butted stainless steel rings for the face and for the crosses inside to prevent the wood balls from migrating.
This one is slightly longer than the first by ~4cm (one wood ball segment), over all it's ~2 meters.
I haven't weighed it yet, but will try to remember to edit this with it's weight later.

Two other improvements:
1) My snek consultants told me the eyes should be bigger, so this time there are 8mm eyes instead of ~5mm eyes.
2) There was a temporary installation of a red rubber band with a forked tip for a tongue; This snek has some red micro cord in a two strand snake knot (you can see why I wanted to use that knot).

Amigurumi - Flying Squirrel
This is my first non lemon amigurumi.
It's a little bit imperfect, but I'm polishing my skills still >_>

It consisted of five parts: two ears, a head, a tail and a body (and then some safety eyes).
The tail has a nice fluffy due to being distresses with a brush :)

I'm liking the yarn I used for the squirrel, it is Lion Brand Yarn's "24/7 Cotton" line, made of "100% mercerized cotton".

This is not my pattern, you can see the pattern maker's stuff at hookabee.com/

Amigurumi - Stress Lemons
I've recently started crochet and one of these days I'll work up to making amigurumi with scale.
For now I've made a few of these squeezable lemons, and have a scarf in progress.

The first (bottom right) and third (top middle) are filled with polyfill. The third is much more packed, which makes it more firm.
The second (bottom left) has a balloon filled with polybeads. The balloon was a bit annoying to fill as the beads liked to stick on the rubber, and I really need to try filling pantyhose next time.
The balloon/pantyhose are need to contain the polybeads otherwise they would likely work their way out and shed.

This is not my pattern, and if you google "crochet stress lemon" you should be able to find the pattern/videos.
I would say this is a decent intro crochet/amigurumi project.

Multiple Chainmail Squish Balls
These are some squishy chianmail balls I have made.
While technically dodecahedrons, they mostly flop into a ballish shape.

The top left and bottom two are both the same link count, although there is a minor difference in aspect ratio (AR) between the tiny ones and the big one.
If my math is right, all three have ~786 links. This is due to using 3x the links on the 'flat' side, as to make it squish instead of flat.
The top left is using stainless steel 18ga 3/16" links.
The bottom left is using stainless steel 20ga 1/8" links.
The bottom right is using titanium 20ga 1/8" links.... and is soooo light!

As for the top right, this was an imperfect experiment.
The previous experiment, using 20ga 3/32" links 1x on the flat side, was niether self supporting nor squishy... it just kind of dimpled in an unsatisfactory way and you couldn't undimple it... 
Anyway, the one pictured used 20ga 3/32" for the linkages, and 20ga 1/8" 2x for the flats.
It turned out without the ability to support is self at all, so I put a 1" wood ball in it.
It is amusing to play with, but there isn't as much fidgeting possible with it.

I'll see about adding a youtube video so you can see them in their full glory.

Not pictured is another 18ga 3/16" ball made in aluminum, which I have given to a friend :)

Scalemail Flower - Dodecahedron
After making the scalemail flower, I wanted to see what else I could while using the flower as a unit.

Made with sixty brushed clear anodized small scales, 150 5/16" 18ga rings, and 132 3/16" 18ga rings.

Originally I attempted to connect the flowers with the 3/16" rings, but I had no room for fit that last two flowers.
After running out of room I reworked it to use the 5/16" rings, though It is a bit floppy.
